Celebrating our first anniversary as AFRY

Today is a day of celebration, as it’s exactly one year since ÅF and Pöyry became AFRY!  

We are in the midst of several major transitions in our society today, driven by digitalisation and a demand for more sustainable solutions. Daily life in the coming decades will change radically for large parts of the world's population. 

Based on our Nordic heritage and global reach, we will accelerate the sustainable transition, leverage our digital excellence, and continue to create value for our owners, clients, employees and society as a whole. 

We are a company with a proud history spanning 125 years. We are now a European leader in sustainable engineering, design and advisory with almost 17,000 employees, offices in 50 countries and projects in 100 countries.  

“Our strong focus on the future and sustainability attract brave talented people, and I’m beyond proud of this company and what we achieve together with our customers. With inclusive and diverse teams with a deep sector knowledge, we are able to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable society”, says Jonas Gustavsson, CEO at AFRY      

With sustainability and strong values at the core, AFRY is one of the most attractive employers in our sector. During 2020 AFRY has entered into new partnerships with Gapminder and the 1.5 degree Business Playbook to further strengthen this position, and contribute to a fact-based worldview and positive impact.        

Thank you to all our clients, partners and employees for this first year on our continued journey! We are happy and proud of our past and present achievements, and we can’t wait to continue Making Future together with all of you.

Please join us and our virtual choir in wishing AFRY a happy birthday!
